View Extra Bluetooth Details in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, Option-click the Bluetooth icon in the menu bar to view a few additional items in the Bluetooth menu. Specifically, it enables you to open three utility applications: Bluetooth Explorer, Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility, and PacketLogger. These are likely of interest primarily to experts, but if you're having troubles with Bluetooth, the Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility in particular may be useful. (These tools are available only if you've installed Apple's Developer Tools.)

Virtual PC 2.1.3 Features Floppy Fix -- Connectix has released a small update to Virtual PC that corrects a problem where PowerBook G3 users running version 2.1.2 were unable to access the floppy drive from the left expansion bay (see "Virtual PC 2.0: Not Just a Minor Upgrade" in TidBITS-433). If you haven't updated the program since version 2.0, be sure to go through the additional steps listed in the Read Me file or on Connectix's Web page before applying the 2.1.3 patch. The updater is a free 1.5 MB download. [JLC]
